April 15, 1942 – Jan. 26, 2022
BOLTON LANDING – Edward A. “Tip” LaGoy, 79, of Potter Hill Road, passed away peacefully, Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at his home. Tip was born in Bolton Landing, April 15, 1942, to Stillman and Beatrice (Bennett) LaGoy.
At the age of 17 he left school and went to work for Ken Carrington as an electrician. He then worked for Al Joyner, until going into business on his own. Over the years he has done electrical work for many contractors with many locations being on the lake. Besides being an excellent electrician, he was a master cobbler.
In 2007, he married Fay Volkmann. Tip had a passion for rabbit hunting with his beagles which he owned and bred a lot. He belonged to the Upper Hudson Beagle Club. He also enjoyed deer hunting and fishing of all kinds.
Of all the places Tip has lived over the years, living on his grandfather’s farm was by far his favorite.
He was predeceased by his brother, Robert (Bertha) LaGoy and his son, Scott LaGoy.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Fay Volkmann LaGoy; his daughters: Julia Riley and Darcy LaGoy; his grandson, Mattingly Riley; his siblings: Linda (Thomas) Quinlan, Thomas (Vicki) LaGoy, Penny (Fred) Cleavland; his brothers-in-law: Donald (Susan) Volkmann and Andrew (Donna) Volkmann; as well as several nieces; nephews; and cousins.
Thank you to everyone who helped on this trip. Tom, Susan and Mary from palliative care. Lisa from High Peaks Hospice and especially Penny and Fred without whom we would not have survived.
In lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to donate may do so to Bolton Central School in honor of Edward LaGoy.
Friends can call Tip’s family from noon to 2 p.m., Saturday, January 29, 2022 at Alexander Funeral Home, 3809 Main St., Warrensburg. Services will be conducted privately at the convenience of the family.
